Very nice and I was looking at them at one stage. Just be warned that if you like to lean the thing right over (I mean you have Peg Savers on your foot pegs and scratched the **** out of the belly pan right over) then they may dig in... which could be bad.

Mind you if you don't ride like that then you won't have any dramas and have yourself a **** comfortable set of highway pegs :)

sping loaded pegs

Just in case everyone is not familiar with the Ergo 3 foot rests. The peddles are on spring loaded hinged mounts that rise up when the weight of the drivers foot and lower leg are removed. So assuming that Firefight100 will be using the main foot pegs when the roads get interesting the Ergo 3 system should be up and OK.

Sorry mate I should have been more clear. It is not the foot pegs/boards/rests I am talking about but the mount where it clamps on to the crash bar and the mount for the pegs themselves. The pegs touching down are no issue as they will just fold up, the other parts mentioned will not and that could be a very big issue depending on how you ride.

I run Rivco stealth hiway pegs which mount higher but don't stick out much further and they are scraped up. No big deal because they just fold back. I was also considering putting on the ergo 3's because hey why not but I stopped because looking at it I was very concerned I would dig those in.

I am not 100% sure this would be the case but it would be so close I chose not to risk it. This video is the one that finally stopped my thoughts in that direction. This is a Goldwing but the guy isn't even scraping the pegs and the mount is very very close.


The Valk rides a little higher then a Goldwing so generally most people will have no problems with the ergo pegs and more power to them, they look sweet as and I would have liked to have had them as well.

However some people (Like myself) like to fold the standard pegs up against the bike (I have titanium skids on them to allow this) on some corners. That kind of riding with those ergo pegs possible could lead to disaster if that dug into the road... that is all my message is today.
